John Edwards – “When I’m Appointed King…”

Just before Democratic rival Hillary Clinton rolled out her massive universal health care program, “Hillary Care version Two”,  former ambulance chaser John Edwards was making another outrageous claim; as president he would cut off health care coverage for himself, Congress, and every other government official until his health care plan was passed into law.

Speaking before the Laborers Leadership Convention last Monday, Edwards said,

“To show Congress just how serious I am, on the first day of my administration, I will submit legislation that ends health care coverage for the president, all members of Congress, and all political appointees in both branches of government on July 20, 2009 – unless we have passed universal health care reform.”  

One of Edwards’ handlers needs to set the Breck Girl down and explain that even if by some weird quirk of fate he was elected president, he does not have the constitutional authority to cancel the health insurance for Congress, political appointees – or anyone else for that matter.
